it has the best economy by far. according to real clear politics poll average president obama is currently leading by two points. with political ads running across the state 24/7 how will iowa shake out on tuesday? guys i think iowa is a weird state. we can all agree. >> no, no. i have friends in iowa. >> i liken to it the new hampshire of the midwest. there's a real strong independent streak there and it's hard to pin down their political leanings. i know you'll get into that in a little bit. but i just wanted to bring up a blog post that jeffrey anderson had at the weekly standard. he was talking about turnout. in 2008 democrats had a one. -poi -- one-point advantage. in the point of this post was i have to think that will tighten. if there's good news for iowa for mitt romney, it's that turnout probably won't be as great for democrats as it was in 2008. and i think that, you know, the tiny margin in '08 that 1% at one point has republicans thinking that iowa is gettable and it's why you've seen them sort of run into the state with an increased ground game. >> i was in iowa
is the state of the economy and we're slow in recovering. in iowa things are pretty good. 5.2% unemployment rate, so i'm wonderi wondering, are people in iowa feeling more like unemployment is at 5% or more like unemployment is at 7.8%? >> i think that depends on who you ask and when you and. if you talk about -- it's interesting to watch republicans, for example, in charge of the state, republican governor, for example. simultaneously touting the fact that the economy is on the move under his administration, and yet, you know, making the point that nationally the economy is still in bad shape. i think that iowa voters have been pretty clear that they feel better about the way things are going until the state than about the nation. you know, obviously, we're all paying attention to the national news, you know, here today in iowa. everyone is hanging on the news about hurricane sandy and what's happening to our friends on the east coast. so, you know, people do pay attention to the national and not just what's going on in their own neighborhood. >> what jumped out at me about this endorsemen
a lot of self-employed people the in the economy. 171,000 implies job growth of about 200,000, and that's about 1.5 times what we need to keep up with population growth. you couple that with reasonable productivity growth and you're starting to get an economy growing at a normal pace. one of two things will happen. either this jobs growth will slow down next year, or you see the kind of growth we need to get flying speed and feeling comfortable. >> s.e., if you're looking for things to feel less good about in this report, you can find them. i don't think it's so much the jobs count. the fact average weekly hours haven't grown over the past month. you can look at that as something that -- >> there's plenty, jared. there's plenty. i'm simply saying that feeling great about these numbers is a symptom of diminished expectations. >> it's a fair point. i wouldn't say i feel great. i would say we're moving in the right direction a little bit quicker than a few months ago. that's good. >> jared, let me ask you about a point you made earlier. you mentioned that the unemployment rate ticked up to
this picture. plus, what all this means for the economy and presidential race. we have all the angles of this developing story right here on "the cycle." throughout the show we share some of the stunning images from this storm. these were taken by a producer as she walked into work this morning. the front of a building ripped off by the wind in lower manhattan.

, unemployment and the economy continue to be the factors that voters go in on tuesday with top of mind and not some of these other things? >> no. i agree with you. it only relates back, s.e. in terms of your argument how to improve the economy, how to create jobs. the president stresses a bigger role for government than mitt romney does and that's the argument. that's the only point about the spherics of communal effort. no, but it's definitely about jobs and the economy. are you kidding me? the voracity of where jeeps are made in ohio or in china tells you everything you need to know about what this election is all about. this election comes down to the question of whether all the jeeps are going to be made in toledo or whether some of are also going to be made in china. that's the election in a nutshell. the jeep, not the storm, but the jeep is really the symbol of this election. >> howard, if you can be a fly on the wall in boston and chicago at the same time -- >> i've tried. >> -- where do you think they would feel more benefit from the race being frozen, knocked off the a-block a
